I always think of Harriet when remembering our years at DePaul and in St. Louis. We had many happy and wonderful times together! She was always kind, caring and a smile on her face! She was loved by all!

Harriet has been a dear friend since we met in 1961 at DePaul Hospital School of Nursing in St. Louis, MO. I have such fond memories of our times together, from nursing school, to visits with her and Pete in Oklahoma, and then visits with her and Jim in El Paso. Sending prayers for Jim and her entire family.

This photo was taken in 1964 on our nursing school graduation day. Harriet is on the left. What a great smile she had.

Making a career change into Senior Living you quickly Learn that loss is the hardest part of the job. No matter how try you hard to keep boundaries, its too hard, and especially with these sweet souls who capture your heart forever. I loved Mrs Harriett from the first day I met her and I tried every day to make sure knew what a huge importance she held in my life and the life of others. She exudes the words strength and love. She was genuine and true and I will forever hold close to my heart our precious talks over the last few weeks. You are so loved Mrs Harriett. Thank you for the light you left behind my beautiful friend!

We met in January 1953, when I moved to St. Joseph from Chicago in the 4th grade. By summer we were good friends, and soon best friends for the next 65 years. Hard to lose someone so special. Missing you.
Love, Jack
